Online High School, Australian Christian College Marsden Park
The Australian Christian College online high school is the largest provider of non-government online education in the country. Their brand has a long history of working with students off campus.
In addition to being a “real school” that delivers learning via distance education, they are also a Christian school. This is at the heart of everything they do.Most non-government schools in Australia are affiliated with a religious denomination such as Catholic schools and Anglican schools.
Their school is non-denominational. What that means is that their staff attend different churches and the school is not aligned to one denomination.
